Default amp repair?

rockford fosgate has absolutely the worst customer service. they wont repsond to my emails and when i called they told me to call someone else. unbelievable.

anyone have any experience fixing an amplifier? the protect light is on with nothing but the b+ , gnd, and remote turn on. I cant even find a repair shop that will do the work, so it looks like im on my own.

You're going to have to open it up and find out which components are bad. It could be a tough job if there's no external signs of failure, IE black marks on the component and or the board. How old is the amp? You're probably better off scraping it.

^that... well... I would suggest scrapping it rather than scraping it. I don't know if scraping would be much help.

I was about to buy a RF amp... 4 x 40w. Love their speakers and thought I'd give their amp a try.

Maybe I should rethink that. ???

I'm not going to lie the speakers sound good but the customer service is terrible.
